Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Note that Pseudevernia is a foliose lichen with a distinct under-surface to its lobes - in this case black beneath when mature, as can be seen in the photograph.
Thanks very much for the identifications and helpful comments. I really appreciate you taking the time to help a novice out! Your website is superb, by the way.
Thanks. My website is my own way of learning these things.
